    Abstract: A number of 333 medical students from the faculties of General Medicine, Pharmacy and Medical Nursing took part in a study which aimed at ascertaining what behavioral coping strategies they use most frequently. By employing SACS (Strategic Approach to Coping Scale), it has been ascertained that the students at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy from Craiova function in a relatively different way from the general population and that they preponderantly use coping strategies which tend to be active and pro-social, such as: cautious action, social relating, assertive action and search for social support.
